South Sudan’s former vice president turned rebel leader, Riek Machar is in the Kenyan capital, Nairobi to meet with the leaders of the neighbouring countries on the peace process with president Salva Kiir’s government.

Upon his arrival in the Kenyan capital, Machar held a meeting with the Kenyan envoy to the Addis Ababa peace talks, Gen Lazarus Symboyo.

“Upon his arrival in Nairobi Dr. Machar met with the Kenyan envoy to the IGAD-sponsored peace talks, Gen Lazarus Symboyo, in which they discussed the agenda for the expected meeting between him and president Uhuru Kenyatta,” Machar’s spokesperson, James Gatdet Dak, told Sudan Tribune on Tuesday.

Dak said the visit which may last for a few days came in response to the invitation extended to the rebel leader Machar by the Kenyan president.

He said Machar also met with his officials based in Nairobi and briefed them on the roadmap agreement he signed with president Kiir and the purpose of his Kenyan visit.

The rebel leader’s spokesperson added that Machar’s meeting with the Kenyan top leaders “may take place any time soon.”
After his visit to Nairobi, Machar is expected to fly to Khartoum for talks with Sudanese officials on the stalled peace process in Addis Ababa.
